Conversations with the Inspiring Ariel Crawford

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ariel Crawford.

Ariel, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Well, I was always into partying and promoting. When I was around 15-16, I would go to the party to mingle and I became cool with the people throwing the parties. Then, when I got around 18-19, I began helping to work with the parties whether it was setting up or collecting money at the door. Then, I began reaching out to different older women and people who I see on top of their game. I began working with Brooke Mackie and I truly thank her from the bottom of my heart because it opened a lot of doors for me. I’ve been blessed with many opportunities and I’m grateful for them all.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I wasn’t a rough one but I wouldn’t call it smooth. When you’re in the spotlight or the party scene a lot of jealousy comes into play. Women who believe you are cheating your way to the top or just want to hang around you because you are the hottest at the time. Some women don’t want you to work with them because they’re selfish and doesn’t want anybody else to grow and flourish. When a thing happens, I always tell people no matter what if you are interested in something and it’s a particular person who you feel can help you definitely reach out because you never know who wants to help or who needs help. No matter what anybody says go for whatever you feel inside because your the only person who can stand in the way of your own future. Nobody else.

Tell us more about your work and what you are currently focused on.
I am a promoter and a model. Different people reach out to me to host different parties or when they have video shoots or hair shoot, makeup or even clothing shoots they come to me. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Floyd Mayweather in an event called “Guns Down Gloves Up” I was a TMT model (The Money Team) amongst this event were other wonderful people. Once again Brooke Mackie is who allowed me to have this opportunity. What sets me apart from others is the strive because I’m ok with starting at the bottom and working my way to the top because I’m ok with learning from people who have done this for so long. Especially if they’re great at what they do yes! I want you to teach me, so I can soon be as good as you!

For good reason, society often focuses more on the problems rather than the opportunities that exist, because the problems need to be solved. However, we’d probably also benefit from looking for and recognizing the opportunities that women are better positioned to capitalize on. Have you discovered such opportunities?
I believe you can do anything you put your mind too. There is none, I think you look better doing this because your this way or this height. If you’re good at what you do, it should never matter about what you look like or what others feel you should do.
